sheworXX is an evolving community of theatre-makers building gender parity and sisterhood locally and globally through community engagement, mentoring, peer education and the production of works by female-identified and feminist artists.

70% of all theatre tickets are purchased by women.
Women make up 60-70% of American theatre audiences.
50% of all graduate theatre students are women.
Over the past 25 years, only 12-17% of staged plays in the US
were written and/or directed by women. 
In the 2014-2015 theatre season only 24% of all plays produced
were written by a woman, living or dead.
68% percent of the Broadway audience is female, but there was
not a single new play by a woman on Broadway in the
2013–14 season...this despite the fact that on Broadway,
shows written by women (who statistically write more
female roles than men) actually pull in more at
the box office than plays by men.
